Chef's Note

For me, eating sorbet is as enjoyable as eating a popsicle was when I was a kid. There was a time when sorbet was served in grand restaurants between the fish course and main course to promote digestion. With today's much lighter cooking, I prefer not to break up the rhythm of the dishes and wines so I serve sorbet as a prelude to dessert, always accompanied by a sour jus.

Summer to me means the hot dry Okanagan Valley of my childhood, a month of freedom to run barefut through the cherry orchards and to eat blueberries straight from the bush. My cooking hearkens back to those remembered flavors.

- 625 ml (2 1/2 cups) (Blueberries) plus a few berries for garnish

Lemon and Tarragon Jus
